What a total load of nonsense.  Where's London?  All these cities are so explorable too, nowhere near the size of cities in the US - you can just cruise round and find stuff.

I guess so. the one and only time I was in barcelona these guys came along, it must have been 2004 or something, on top of the macba craze. anyway, I felt ashamed to tell the locals that I'm german because I saw these persons around. how can you carry on a bus load of young skaters to a skatespot and let them do whatever they want? that's totally not cool for the spot or the locals ... anyway, 95% of the things that titus does suck badly, but I heard good things about his son who apparently is more a skater then a business guy and handles things better for the community.

Sure you can but this stuff is still excellent. Especially if you're on limited time. I agree that this is almost too easy, you can just get a map and ask locals but having been to Barcelona with a map with full of spots upon arrival, I can't complain.

The only bad thing is that because of these spotmaps there are more people treating cities like skateparks, using no discretion at all with when skating certain spots and being disrespectful.

I don't think you're wrong, I'm just less skeptical when it comes to the dittmann junior. I heard some funny stuff about that happened when a.s.a.p. transformed into 24/7 distribution and that made him look more legit then his dad. his dad was the worst thing that could have happened to german skateboarding, though. you can't do more wrong then he did.

He doesnt give exact directions(on the barcelona one at least), some are still pretty tricky to find.

Stefan, the dude who makes it, is one of the best people i've ever met through skating. The man loves to skate as much as possible and that map is a reflection of it. I'd bet that he's actually done a trick at 75% of those spots.

Now that you said Stefan, I checked the pictures and I remembered that I met that guy. He's super rad dude, skates really well. He just showed in my town out of blue in the middle of summer, he just bumped into me by chance, we skated together for couple of days. I showed him around. We even had pretty funny accident with local cop. I was at the this spot with Stefan and one other italian guy, I don't remember his name. Cop thought that we were just some kids and we are all thirty somethings. Italian guy didn't have any ID and cop was getting pissed, lucky Stefan understands italian, so he translated to me in english and I translated to cop in croatian. It was actually pretty funny. Cop was so confused that he didn't know what to do, so he just kicked us from that spot.

From what I saw in the Vienna section, Zurg is right, you'd still have to search and ask the locals. But generally it's cool to get an overview over what places you can go to, if you don't find anything rolling around.

A few spots in Vienna are sadly already history by the way.

The reason there is no London is that the site is made by one guy on his own and he just cant go everywhere. I am sure once he travells to London to skate, he will put something up. But thats also the reason why every Spot on the maps is really skateable and there are no shitty skateparks or whatever on it like on a lot of these community sites. You might find a lot of spots by cruising round the cities in Europe, but you will never be able to find that much if you dont have a lot of time on your hands.


Stefan told me he skated each of the spots except for some big rails. Here is a part of him, where you can see a lot of the cities from the map:

Berghain is a nightmare, they do not let any groups of boys that look like tourists in at all, i had to go alone with my girlfriend the 2nd time. The new home of techno in berlin though!

^ yeah, that thing is on the outside of skatehalle berlin (google it). It's near the warschauerstrasse train station. Easy to find. Berlin's got plenty of good street spots as well. Have fun!

I was in the neighbourhood this morning and went to have a look. A local fella outside the Skatehalle told me the little outdoor park was private and he didn't have a key. Ballache was slightly diminished by his saying it was hard to skate and there's another DIY park in Treptower Park which is nicer. I couldn't find it, so possibly the joke's on me, but a Berliner on this might be able to confirm or deny this.

Betonhausen at Skatehalle is in deed private. And it's hard to skate but fun as hell.
Treptower park I've never heard of... go to Mellow Park and be amazed. That's a good DIY park right there. Might be the same thing as Treptower, maybe.

i can totally co-sign this. i met him in berlin this summer and had the pleasure of skating with him and his crew for a few days. nothing but good times and memories.
